WOTC dragon repaints 7 Years, 8 Months ago  
Well, months and MONTHS after planning to do it, I finally got around to repainting some of the WOTC dragons.

I repainted the Huge Black from War of the Dragon Queen, since out of the package he looked extremely dull for a Huge mini. He was all one color, practically! The sculpt on this guy is pretty mediocre, IMHO, but he can be improved with at least SOME color. Originally I just drybrushed some white on the wings, but I decided I needed to go a lot farther to make him interesting.

Then there's the Colossal Red Dragon -- giant red blob. I actually went back and forth on this for ages, not sure if maybe the solid red wasn't actually kinda neat. I mean, it's certainly DIFFERENT to have a dragon with no distinctive coloring on its belly. I thought about changing the wings and claws and then just leaving it alone.

But in the end I had to do it. So I added some black mottling to the wings, added some gold to the claws, intensified the gold in the eyes -- and then did a huge bone white stripe down the belly.

Actually, the belly is much less white than the pics indicate -- the lighting really glares off white, so it looks a lot whiter in the pics than in person, where it is more of a bone color, with brown and yellow in it. More importantly, in person you can see the shading more, so it looks less like a solid stripe of white and more like plates. In any case, I'm very happy with how it came out. There's some nice contrast and some variety in it now.

Great job. I got to touch up some of my DDM. I think I'll start with the black dragon.

Those repaints look nice L... have you tried your hand on metals? There are some nice dragon sculpts over at both dark sword minis and reaper.

Thanks for the kind words!

As for the metals -- oh, I dig 'em. Yes, I've posted many pics of my Reaper dragons -- I've done a black, a white, a red, a green, and a blue, as well as a red version of Marthrangul, one of the big ones. I've also done a few variants, like Blacksting the Wyvern. I really love the Reaper metals.

Maybe I'll try to find my old pics of those guys, or take new ones, to join in the recent dragon-mania on the forums...

L,
I really like the bone colored plating in the chest. And the wing color is awesome, it looks translucent. Amazing!

Great, great Job!

The other one is good too, although I don't particularily like dragons with riders on them as a rule...

How about a Pic of all your Dragons together so we can see the difference in colors and sizes?

There was a repaint of the Colossal Red Dragon done for GenCon that looked rather nice.

Kradlo--that red dragon was painted by my friend Peter Lee who painted that. He plays in my home-brew RPG and
we hang out on Tuesday nights at "Paint Night" at my FLGS. Great guy--real friendly, down to earth.

We get to see some the prizes and awards that he paints up for Wizards. Some stuff he can't bring in
because of the non-disclosure agreement he has with WotC though.

I was fortunate enough to have him paint a mini for my game (the character that he's playing).
